    Chef Tweaker's Note:

    A friend got a version of this from a health food store (courtesy of the Comprehensive Medical Center in Bellevue, WA). It was entitled "Immune Breakfast", served cold and in addition to the listed ingredients also included 1 cup soy lecithin granules and 1 cup ground milk thistle. I omitted them and wanted to post this as I make it. Also it originally had oat bran but I knew that I would prefer the wheat. Naturally, everything was organic on the original recipe.

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Prep: Grind almonds in a coffee grinder (makes if fine like flour) or in a food processor (leaves chunks which is good too). If you have whole flaxseed, then grind it as well. I was able to find cold-processed ground flaxseed from my local warehouse store and I keep it in the freezer.
    2. 2
      Combine all ingredients except the fruit. Store it in an airtight container in the refrigerator for best quality.
    3. 3
      To serve COLD: The evening before, scoop 1/2 cup of the mixture into a bowl, add about 2 Tbs dried fruit and 1 cup of soymilk. Allow to sit overnight to soak up the liquid. If fresh fruit is available you may want to wait to add it (1/2 cup) just before serving. If you are in a hurry, you can try 30 minutes soaking time but if you can't soak overnight I recommend the HOT serving instead.
    4. 4
      To serve HOT: (I discovered this out of necessity. It tastes quite different from the cold version but it makes a nice change from regular oatmeal.).
    5. 5
      Scoop 1/2 cup of mixture into a microwaveable bowl and add 2 Tbs of dried fruit or 1/2 cup fresh fruit and 1 cup soymilk. Micro for 2 minutes. Stir, and micro for 1 minute more. Allow to cool slightly before eating.
    6. 6
      Note: If you have it available, you can try substituting chia seed for the flaxseed. Chia is very tiny -like the size of kiwi seeds- and it doesn't need to be ground for your body to digest it. It has a much higher nutritional footprint than flaxseed. Unfortunately it is about $15 a pound and I have never had enough on hand to put a whole cup into the mix. Instead I just left out the flax and put one tablespoon into the individual bowl.
    7. 7
      Note on nurtritional info: According to my calculations it contains 272 calories and 10 grams of fiber not counting the fruit. I guess it would depend on the amount in your soymilk etc.

      This was a delicious, easy way to get more fiber into me!! OL! Originally I wanted to do the cold version, but got impatient and made the hot version. I used dried cranberries and blueberries. I loved the natural sweetness.Yum, thanks for sharing!

      Very, very nice cereal, & although we'll be eating it cold during the summer, I'll be making this one often, so we'll be doing it hot come the cooler months! Once mixed, it is as handy as oatmeal, & much more tasty! And, since we usually have a variety of dried fruits (raisins, cranberries, apricots, pears, peaches, mango, you name it) chopped & ready for things like this, that's especially nice! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Made & reviewed as a THANK YOU for playing with us in Please Review My Recipe during the recent tour]

      A nice healthy breakfast! Not only did we enjoy the nutty, fruit flavor of this cereal mix but also that it was something DH could come home and microwave for a quick and breakfast. We made this with oat bran and used dried blue berries. Thanks for the post.
